About Media Maraton de Bogota

The Bogotá International Half Marathon (Spanish: Media Maratón Internacional de Bogotá) is an annual road running competition over the half marathon distance 21.0975 kilometres (13.1094 mi) which takes place in Bogotá, Colombia in late July or early August. Established in 2000, it holds IAAF Gold Label Road Race status, making it the first and thus far only South American race to achieve this accreditation. The competition features both elite and popular (or recreational) sections within the half marathon.

The elite race has featured a number of high profile runners, including former marathon world record holder and champion Catherine Ndereba, two-time Saint Silvester Road Race winner James Kwambai, Olympic medallist and New York City Marathon champion Joyce Chepchumba and 2005 World Half Marathon champion Fabiano Joseph. The race is not typically conducive to fast times as the city and its course are at 2600 metres above sea-level, a factor which inhibits long distance runners.
